While we are gradually allowed to have insights into the twisted mind of the killer, it is only after the third death that Inspector Gouse, in charge of the case, is prepared to admit that there is a deliberate pattern to the killings. Pauls concerns for his wife and family are increased when he recognises that each of the previous victims had incidents of harassment before their deaths, and now those harassments are coming his way, each one more cruel than the one before. He is forced to face up to the fact that he is the next victim, and wonders how he would react in the event of a confrontation. Claire, the girl friend of the last victim, has already told him of the potentially obscene scenario the perpetrator had set up, to use her as a hit at her boy friend. When she realises that a man who has been paying her keen attention at the local night club knows more about the incidents than he should, she again visits Paul to tell him of her suspicions. But that very action triggers the killer into a final face to face encounter, and Paul has to find out, and quickly, how to stay alive.
